The Burrard Hotel

Mid-century accommodations

The Burrard Motor Inn, centrally located in downtown Vancouver across from St. Paul’s Hospital, opened its doors to guests in 1956 as a typical 3-story, garden courtyard-style motel.

Today, now known as The Burrard, its a hip, retro boutique hotel that’s been freshened up a lot since the days of Elvis and The Beatles, yet still retains that vintage character most modernists are looking for.

Updated rooms come with complimentary wi-fi, flat screen TVs and other modern amenities while the garden courtyard, an oasis in this city, has been enhanced with a small fire pit, a ping pong table and cozy places to lounge with your morning coffee from the hotel’s on-site café, Container.
